Hello pop pickers, Kenny here! In my (admittedly biased) view, these four tracks are John's finest work to date. There's no filler here, but what there is is very satisfying! The stunning power ballad 'I Can't Go Back To Savoury Now' headlines this super song selection, but 'Two Margarines', Serial Cereal Eater' and 'Tummy Trouble' really bring home the bacon as well. Buy it now, (don't be put off by that 4-6 weeks nonsense) and let's get John chart-bound!

How on earth to explain the appeal of John Shuttleworth songs?

Graham Fellow's "John Shuttleworth" first appeared as part of a wave of "character" comedy in the late 80s and early 90s ("Loadsamoney", "Mrs Merton" "Alan Partridge" etc etc) and is still going strong. He was always different from the other creations in that he was always much more than just a figure of fun. There's a real pathos to John and a deeply surreal element; something that's always appealed to me. Not to mention the fully realised Shuttleworth Universe with agent ("sole agent and next-door neighbour") Ken Worthington, Wife Mary, Joan Chitty and a social stratum that is perfectly caught, namely "genteel working class" (think doillies, salad cream and the couples on Derek Batey's "Mr and Mrs") In fact if you ever really think about how the whole thing is put together with one person doing all the voices and lots of multi-tracking then it is even a little bit scary.

I suppose everyone will have their own take on John. At one level these are just mad, catchy songs about daft things. What I Iike though is how the whole thing is a sort of a critique of celebrity and pop. Whatever it is that we can be said to value in our gilded ones (youth, talent, wealth, glamour, looks, style) John is not. He is an unemployed, uneducated, styleless, deeply conventional man from South Yorkshire. And yet...John is a singer-song writer and he has to write about something so he puts into his lyrics the things that excite him: going to the restaurant in the garden centre, being served a cappucino ("campacino"), noticing a new variety of breakfast cereal for sale. I suppose the point is why are these things any less suitable as subjects for songs than anything else?

Only 4 tracks so more of a snack than a meal. 2 margarines is a supremely catchy ditty about the sheer horror of having 2 tubs of margarine open at the same time (we've all been there!). Serial Cereal Eater is a disco classic and one of the few songs to mention the criminally underrated Optivita. Tummy Trouble is the weakest track but does feature John's trademark elephant trump noise. I Can't Go Back to Savoury Now is possibly the best song he ever recorded - a masterpiece about the sickening dilemma of seeing good food wasted. It has one of John's best ever rhymes - "Dog's Dish" and "God's Wish" which for my money is close to genius. I heard this song for the first time at a live gig and was singing it for weeks. Trust me, it is one of the catchiest songs you will ever hear and you get the lyrics too so no excuse for not singing along. It is also one of John's most empassioned performances and you really feel his pain as the stunning shepherd's pie is slopped into the dog's bowl. To quote young Oliver - Please sir I want some more!

John serves up a quartet of songs which offer a warning to others about some food based troubles.
The first 'Two Margarines' is a useful warning to us all, though technically no-one actually sells margarine any more, but this song can apply to any spread that you would keep in the fridge.
The second, serial Cerial Eater, is an honest admission from John about some of his eating habits
The third 'Tummy trouble' sees John give us some valuable advise about what to do if this happens to you.
Lastly 'I can't go back to savoury now' is a salutory tale relating some of the problems you may face when consuming a two course meal. Fwuff
Highly recommended. Take care.
